March Odds and Ends
For March Madness I started the girl bunny last week. It is by The Sweetheart Tree. The companion piece I started this week. Hopefully I can get this done before Easter.
Last week we finished putting in our garden. Ric made the grow boxes and we picked up the soil and starts on Saturday when we took Kristen her boxes. We will add more as $ allows and see how these do for this season. I am hoping that we get lots of tomatoes, beans, and cucumbers along with other vegetables we planted.
Last week we waited in line to get our book signed by Marissa's former boss and hopefully the next POTUS. We even got to meet Spenser who Marissa worked with in Boston and some of her politcal friends. We enjoyed visiting with Governor Mitt Romney and having him sign his book and pictures. (Some of the pictures were blurry)
I thought I would catch up on my activities before March ends. The rest of the story on the Pinewood Derby. Will's car was not the slowest. At the beginning we thought it would be. Will had been prepped by his parents to be a good sport if he lost. He was doing pretty good. After several races he wasn't very happy that he wasn't winning and then his Den Mother told him there was a special prize of twizzlers for the car that didn't win a race. Now he was cheering to lose. At the race off he started to win and that spoiled the chance for the bag of twizzlers. Well grandpa bought him a bag of twizzlers and we celebrated the night with ice cream.
